Timberland was founded in 1918 by Nathan Swartz who wanted to provide comfortable and hard-wearing shoes for the blue-collar workers of New England. In 1973 it became a household name thanks to the release of its first waterproof boot, the classic ‘Yellow boot’. Since then the brand continues to draw inspiration from its New England heritage creating footwear to support any outdoor lifestyle from city streets to woodland hikes. Timberland has a strong ethos of responsibility and this is reflected through their design and manufacturing processes and social and environmental projects. By purchasing a Timberland boot you are investing in an outstanding product and making a difference in the world.
